I used option Ask a Lawyer Now. I had a question about expedite. I had full . grounds for expedite that I got. However, thanks to the Ask a Lawyer option I got delayed by at least two weeks: 1) My main question was what is the best and quickest route to request expedite. I already had full I-129F package and expedite package ready. I was not sure: should I submit I-129F package and wait for reference # or call and request expedite immediately or any other quicker option. 2) To get an answer I registered and paid registration fee to Ask a Lawyer on this website. After this I asked my question above. 3) I got response pretty quick, which was general, and for more advice asking for additional $70 (I think. Or something close) to speak with an attorney. 4) I decided to proceed to make sure. Shortly, I got a call back. I don't think this was really attorney. The lady recommended me to submit expedite request together with I-129F package. Essentially, including in actual package, which I did. 5) 2 weeks after receiving WAC number I called USCIS asking about the status. I was surprised to learn that this is not the way to submit expedite request and that there is no way for the USCIS to know that I am asking for expedite if you submit together with the package. Thus, I lost 2 weeks. Do not use this option! This is scam. They will take your money and you will NOT speak with real attorney. What is worse, you will get wrong advice. Just call USCIS if you have questions or hire real attorney. Consultation with immigration attorney in San Diego, for example, is only $100 but you can meet with real person.
